Voodoo Doll

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Voodoo Doll

I have a voodoo doll that I can make do stuff.

If I slice it with a razor it will make your skin cut.

If I spin its head around your neck will break.

If I shake it rapidly it will make where you stand quake.

If I bend a finger on my voodoo doll you will feel that same pain.

If I pour water on my doll, you will get rain.

If I don’t want you to see anymore I will pluck its button eyes out.

If I want you to shut up I will stitch close its mouth.

I can make you dance like an idiot if I dangle my doll on strings

I can make your nerves hurt if I stick it with pins

If I need you to fall in love with me I will kiss the voodoo doll

But if I roll it you will slip and break your hip when you fall

But wait, there is much more I can do

If I light the doll on fire it will burn, but so will you.

My voodoo doll can represent anyone I chose

A lawyer, a doctor, a president or a musician singing the blues.

So before you cross me just remember this

I am the powerful shaman whom will make you seize to exist.
